You’d think after almost a decade of being associated with this show, Arie Luyendyk Jr. would know how it works!
In case you haven’t heard, the former race car driver is said to have pulled a Jason Mesnick to end his season as The Bachelor. Us Weekly reports that he proposes to one of his final two, only to call things off and reunite with his runner-up!
And it sounds like it all goes down on camera! Because of course it does!
In January, the 36-year-old took a camera crew to the winner’s home to end things — and we’re hearing the production team has been following all three people involved (Arie, Becca, and Lauren) ever since! After he split from his original pick, he was once again joined by cameras as he flew to the runner-up and “begged her to take him back ├óΓé¼┬ª and she did.” And that’s what we’ll get to see next week after the finale.
An insider explained:
“Arie didn’t handle the situation well. He wasn’t very sympathetic or even nice … All three sat down for interviews with Chris Harrison. ABC isn’t worried this will hurt the franchise. They’re excited to have a dramatic ending.”
After one of the most vanilla seasons ever, we’re excited about some dramz, too!
You can catch the finale of The Bachelor Monday and Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST.
